Stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted which leads to sudden death. Immediate treatment can save lives and enhance their changes for successful recovery. Dr. Sai Sudarsan provides the best surgery like :
A surgery that is used to prevent strokes in people who have carotid artery disease is known as carotid endarterectomy. Carotid artery disease develops as a result of plaque accumulation in the two large arteries on each side of the neck. Plaque accumulation in carotid arteries can cause many issues such as stroke. There lies the importance of carotid endarterectomy.
In order to remove plaque build up from the carotid artery the surgeon creates an incision during the surgery. It can help to remove the blood clots and restore the normal blood flow through the artery. This surgery can lower the risk of stroke. a skilled and experienced surgeon will be able to do the surgery.
The procedure of endarterectomy was developed and introduced in 1946. The main objective of carotid endarterectomy is to prevent the adverse sequences of carotid artery stenosis. The procedure is not suitable for all people. After diagnosis, your doctor can tell you whether you are suitable for the procedure. People who come under high risk criteria for the procedure are:
- Above 80 years old
- With severe heart disease
- High cervical or intrathoracic lesion
- Contralateral laryngeal nerve injury
- Contralateral carotid artery occlusion
- Prior ipsilateral carotid endarterectomy
- Severe renal disease
- Left main or multi vessel coronary artery disease and
- Certain other conditions
Like all other surgeries, this procedure also has certain post-surgery risks and complication. It may include:
- Hemorrhage of the wound bed
- Injury to the hypoglossal nerve
- Hyperperfusion syndrome etc.
You might have to stay in the hospital for one or two days. The doctor will examine the progress during this period. The doctor may prescribe necessary follow-up care and medication after you leave the hospital. The procedure is completely durable but, it cannot completely stop plaque accumulation. You might have to take care of your lifestyle including food and other habits.
